While the Europeans are compelled to share some of their own songs, beliefs and personal history, it's the telling of the Inuit stories that compels much of the movie.
Watch as an entire social order collapses without a sound -- witness the seismic shift, hear the oblivious silence, and be moved.
Not every admirer of the first film will enjoy it, but it values its subjects too much to mold their rhythms to an outsider's attention span.
Glacially paced and structurally lumpy.
A fascinating, multifaceted historiography and autoethnography, even if its story of cultural imperialism offers few new insights
The sad story of how shamanism and the ancient ways of the Inuit was replaced by Christianity and a hatred of the world in one community in 1922.
Wonderfully elegiac... the melody of language is essential to the film's beauty, in which disposable small talk sounds like Confucius proverbs of biblical longevity.
Pushes forward, deeper and deeper among the ruins of a culture cast fatally adrift by modernization.
Despite its faults as a film, Journals stands alone. You simply cannot go elsewhere this year for self-expressed insights into the lives of people of Canada's north.
